Gooee, the Florida-based smart lighting platform provider, has partnered with PointGrab, a provider of an intelligent edge-analytics sensing solution, to deliver energy savings by capturing real-time intelligence of a building’s environment.
The partnership will enable Gooee to connect CogniPoint, PointGrab’s deep-learning based sensor, into its lighting ecosystem and stream the data collected through the cloud.
CogniPoint provides data on the presence, number and position of occupants in an area by utilising advanced deep learning neural networks technology that delivers actionable analytics to optimise a building’s operations, space management, energy savings and business intelligence.
This approach to building automation will provide real-time intelligence and control, creating ‘true’ smart buildings that are highly efficient and improve the occupant’s experience, according to Gooee.
Simon Coombes, CTO and co-founder of Gooee, said: “Alongside our IoT sensor, the PointGrab sensing platform will generate a rich dataset that we expect will lead to several energy saving opportunities and the optimization of smart buildings.”
Itamar Roth, chief business officer of PointGrab, added: “Due to the increased demand for more intelligent and more efficient buildings following the rapid adoption of IoT, smart sensors are essential to today’s building automation capabilities. Integrating our technology into Gooee’s ecosystem expands our market reach and enables customers to access the complete joint solution.”
For Gooee, this is the first integration of third party technology into its ecosystem; Coombes said more is to come. “We have begun other integrations that will enhance both user experience and yield a rich presentation of data that can offer insights and suggestions on energy savings.”
